Discover ECA Group 1000m depth rated core sampler recovery system for light duty ROVs

Tuesday, June 05 2018
ECA Group has developed a 1000m depth rated core sampler recovery system made of a 5 function arm and a 6 sample compartments receiver, mounted on a compact skid to be attached under any type of ROVs, including light duty ones

For decades scientists have been using water samplers, mounted on ROV’s or on other underwater structures, but recovery of underwater solid core samples (such as coral, sediments, fauna fragments..) has so far required heavy equipment which restricted its installation to heavy duty ROVs.

ECA Group thus developed a unique system, operational up to 1000m mounted on a single compact skid, incorporating:

The ROV is equipped with a 7 function telemetry unit which, beyond the arm control, has 2 spare functions devoted to the compartment drawer extension and withdrawal movements.

The neutral weight skid, of compact dimensions, can be attached under any type of ROV, even of small size.

Applications in the Maritime sector

This solution was specifically designed to answer the needs for efficient tools to be used by Research institutes and underwater inspection service providers in order to perform operations in the field of Oceanography, Hydrography and Aquaculture.

This modular system allows to carry out the following tasks:

  • Sediment recovery
  • Coral sampling
  • Flora and fauna sample recovery
  • Small objects recovery

A system already in use in Monaco

The first system has been successfully installed on an ECA Group H800-1000 ROV that has been delivered a few months ago to the The Monaco Oceanography Institute.
